LEICA M3!!!!

I've been naughty.
I got three cd's(Led Zeppelin III,Bob Dylan Time Out of Mind,Infected Mushroom IM the Supervisor -all great)

I also got 2 ugly leica M3's with some issues(stuck shutters etc),a googled summaron 35/2.8 with matching filter and a brown 34mm canon filter for my canon - all for 200$. I already arranged a deal with a guy who will pay for the CLA's of both,I will choose one,he will get the other.

here are some pictures of the RF family(canon 7 + 35/2.8,leica m3x2 with summaron)

If all goes well - I migh sell the canon to fund a summicron

all the pretty little horses

Hushaby, don’ you cry
Go to sleepy little baby

When you awake you shall have cake
And all the pretty little horses.
Blacks and bays, dapples and grays
Coach, and a six a little horses.

Hushaby, don’ you cry
Go to sleepy little baby

Way down yonda’, down in the medder
There’s a poor little lambie.
Bees an’ the butterflies peckin’ out his eyes
Poor lambie cried fo’ his mammy.

Hushaby, don’ you cry
Go to sleepy little baby

Nick Cave - all the pretty little horses

Est ubi gloria nunc Babilonia?

Est ubi gloria nunc Babilonia? Nunc ubi dirus
Nabugudonosor, et Darii vigor, illeque Ciprus?
Qualite orbita viribus incita praeterierunt
Fama relinquitur, illaque figitur, hi putrieriunt
Nunc ubi curia, pompaque Julia? Caesar abisti!
Stat rosa pristina nomine, nomina nuda tenemus.

Где Вавилонское царство вселенское?
Где сильных мира многоотличие?
Где днесь величие Дария, Кира?
Камень покатится, слава утратится, не уцелели...
Где ныне курия, шествия Юлия, пламени знаки?
Роза при имени прежнем
С нагими Мы впредь именами!

Where is the worldly empire of Babylon?
Where is the might of the rulers of old?
Where are the high days of Nabuhadnaccer,Darius and Kyrus?
The stone turns, glory fades, none shall be saved this fate...
Where is the Kyrie, the march of Julius, the signals of fire?
Only the rose keeps its true form
Our names are uncovered before all to see!

Bernard of Morlan circa 1140
(The English is my try to translate from the russian with puny latin knowledge)

3 for enstrangement 1 for longing

The Dresden Dolls - Sing

There is this thing that's like touching exept you dont touch
Back in the day it just went without saying at all
All the world's history gradually dying in shock
There is this thing it's like talking except you don't talk
You sing
You sing

Sing for the bartender sing for the janitor sing
Sing for the cameras sing for the animals sing
Sing for the children shooting the children sing
Sing for the teachers who told you that you couldn't sing
Just sing

There is thing keeping everyone's lungs and lips locked
It is called fear and it's seeing a great renaissance
After the show you can not sing wherever you want
But for now let's just pretend we're all gonna get bombed
So sing

Sing cause its obvious sing for the astronauts sing
Sing for the president sing for the terrorists sing
Sing for the soccer team sing for the janjaweed sing
Sing for the kid with the phone who refuses to sing
Just sing

Life is no cabaret
We don't care what you say
We're inviting you anyway
You motherfuckers you'll sing someday...
You motherfuckers you'll sing someday...
You motherfuckers you'll sing someday...

bride mafia headquarters

read Sami Michael's Trumpet in The Wadi - he can't write women, knows shit about russians and lets his political view effect his writing - nevertheless it's a good book.

The Poor Graveyard

This cemetary is used for migrant workers and gentiles(in a city with small populations of both)it is very sad,small mostly neglected and lonely. I doubt it is in use anymore. It is adjasent to another gentile cemetary(WW1 brittish military one).

the ants remind me of 100 years of solitude.

"When they call me a ladies man I laugh bitterly,
thinking of the 10,000 nights I spent Alone"

Leonard Cohen

I watched "I'm Your Man" - it really shows how the field commander is higher by a magnitude then all who sing his songs.

Watched "Profundo Rosso" - so so.

I feel no need to apologize : here's my organ

A recess in a music concert in Augusta Victoria.It was lovely.
I found this film by accident in a Janloup Sieff book(I wanted to streighten it up a year or so ago).

I hear some people critisizing the way I conduct my personal life(usually from behind my back) - I say to all of you fuck off - I have a right to do whatever I fucking please. Loneliness and grief I carry within and keep private - I will not flaunt it.

an unrelated thought popped up while talking to a friend(Adi).
Bolemia is the ultimate symbol of the times and material culture - we are so well of we eat and throw up with no additional value(for our survival).
